    Signiant Adds Workflow and Business Intelligence E

    January 16, 2013, 10:19 am
    Direct-to-Workflow Delivery and Cloud APIs Further Broaden Market Appeal of Easy-to-use Software

    Signiant, the market leader in intelligent file movement
    software for the media and entertainment industry, today announced several
    enhancements to its award-winning Media Shuttle hybrid SaaS file sharing
    solution. The new features further expand its capabilities for media
    enterprises grappling with the challenge of delivering large videos or other
    massive files fast, easily and securely over private networks and the public


    Recently deemed a "standout solution among available
    accelerated file transfer options" and winner of the 2012 "Best of
    IBC" Award, Signiant's Media Shuttle has seen broad market adoption as the
    simplest, most affordable way for media professionals to move large files. Since
    the patent-pending software debuted six months ago, Media Shuttle is now used
    by large broadcasters, Hollywood production companies, media service providers
    and post-production facilities in every major market.


    "With Media Shuttle, we have the ease of use and
    flexibility of a cloud-based solution, but files arrive directly on a server
    sitting on our premises, which cuts delivery time in half compared to other
    products on the market," said George Rizkallah, founder and CEO of The
    Product Factory, a Burbank-based creator of animation TV shows. "As a
    subscription-based solution, Media Shuttle also lets us avoid sizable capital
    outlays. After working for years with customers like Marvel and NFL Films who
    routinely send us large digital files using Signiant's solutions, it's a
    delight to be able to access all of the key capabilities of Signiant in an
    affordable, easy to use tool like Media Shuttle."


    With software deployed in the cloud, Signiant is able to
    deliver continual enhancements to users without the typical hassles of software
    upgrades. Available immediately, the latest enhancements include:


     --  On-Ramp to Automated Workflows. Media Shuttle administrators can now configure
    their branded file transfer portals to deliver content directly
    to a network folder, providing an instant on-ramp to automated
    file-based workflow operations, such as virus checking or transcoding. These workflows can be driven by Signiant's own powerful

    Managers+Agents(TM) software for secure, automated system-to-system

    movement, or any third-party workflow process.


     --  Cloud-based APIs. Media Shuttle cloud APIs
    enable Signiant customers

     to gain
    management intelligence on file transfer processes for business
    analytics or to drive billing, content tracking, compliance and audit
    systems. For example, a media company could use the data to

    develop a
    report identifying a list of users by department and files

    transferred for internal chargeback.


    The newest addition to Signiant's portfolio of accelerated
    file transfer solutions, Media Shuttle provides an effective alternative to FTP
    and public file sharing solutions -- without associated file size constraints
    or security risks. Media Shuttle's hybrid SaaS architecture lets users access
    fast file transfer capabilities through a simple interface in the cloud while
    maintaining the file cache within the secure control of their own network.
    Unlike other solutions, Media Shuttle gives IT the power to determine where
    content is stored -- on private networks or in the cloud -- and how network
    resources should be allocated for maximum enterprise efficiency. A flexible
    subscription-based pricing model makes Media Shuttle the ideal solution for
    project-based initiatives or enterprises looking to scale for demand.


    The latest enhancements to Signiant's Media Shuttle are
    available immediately in both Media Shuttle versions: Media Shuttle Standard
    Edition, a downloadable single-portal solution for project teams up to 50; and
    Media Shuttle Enterprise Edition, a multi-portal solution scalable to thousands
    of users with features for delegated administration, storage management and
    server load balancing to ensure optimal performance across multiple file
    transfer portals.
